As I stepped out of the office today to go get some lunch I noticed something odd about half a block away. I immediately knew what it was but in my head I was thinking that it wasn't one of "those" simply because you just don't see "those" around here.

To my joy it certainly was one of "those" and I had a chance to talk with the owner a bit and really size up the car. First off let me say that this car was superbe! It was much smaller than I had imagined and had a strong muscular look from all angles. Under the hood was a 351 with lot's of room and I noticed the speedo was rated at 140 (mph?).

What a fantastic car and a pleasure to finally be able to see one in real life!

Here are a couple pix I snapped.

BTW - those GT coupes were built to race in production touring cars - like trans am. The 140mph speedo is real and the 4V clevelands with top loader and 9" would cruise all day. The GTs also have 4 wheel disc brake set up.

The one in the photos looks like a real nice example although the wheels spoil it.
